I've been going to Isaac Holmes to get my haircut for about two years now. And recently, he decided to break out on his own and open a shop in Chicago. It's always a great moment when a friend takes the leap, and Isaac is doing it right. A spartan shop outfitted with some amazing re-purposed elements, custom woodwork, and subway tile — he seems right at home. And he'll grab you a beer from the cooler, even at 10 in the morning.
Congratulations, Isaac. Godspeed.
